This is the report on a project that field-tested and validated a comprehensive screening tool for improving victim identification, victim services, and law enforcement efforts on behalf of victims of human trafficking.
This guide provides users with recommendations on how to build trust with potential victims, maintain confidentiality, and use the tool correctly. When properly used, the tool could give victim service providers, law enforcement and legal, healthcare, and social service providers with a standard means of identifying victims of human trafficking.
